Caton-Woodville's "A Gentleman in Khaki" - much reproduced in print, porcelain, bronze - and I think that this little "scrap", about 5" tall is of painted celluloid

Often with a wounded comrade laying in front of him, offering a round of ammunition?
Or am I thinking of different but similar illustration?

Good day Leigh,

Would you be thinking of Woodville's painting of the Boer surrender at Paardeburg on Feb 27, 1900, with soldiers of the Royal Canadian Regiment in the foreground?

I don't know I'm afraid.

Mention of Canadians reminded me that I have this, measures about 3' X 2' as does the Kitchener one, they're printed on a thick card.
